"Tablets may get the most attention, but far more TVs will be sold in 2011 and they'll increasingly connect to the Web and run software applications. Maybe we should think of them as huge iPads hanging on the wall." ---Seattle Times

The Consumer Electronics Show is nearly here. Make way Google, move over Apple! Microsoft Windows TV is here. According to Seattle Times, Microsoft offers an enhanced and connected TV experience right at the comforts of your home.

As Seattle Times noted:

“Tablets may get the most attention, but far more TVs will be sold in 2011 and they’ll increasingly connect to the Web and run software applications. Maybe we should think of them as huge iPads hanging on the wall.”

True to speak, the Internet TV craze is increasing. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone. Who would have thought that one day TV and Internet will be intertwined?

The Times said that these boxes will be under the power of Microsoft’s Windows Embedded platform and use the Windows Media Center interface. The TV sets have price tags of $200 price point.

One more thing, the ARM processors will be revealed at CES 2011 which was reported by NY Times and The WSJ last year. It says that the newest version of Windows could at least be two years out and that the company aims for the full version of OS to ARM devices. In other words, this is different.

If this rumor is true, then finally, there is contender to compete against Apple TV, Boxee and Google TV.
